away lyrics – kathleen edwards

i remember the way
driving home late
speeding all the way
alone in the rain
i was rehearsing a part
from down at the bar
my mouth smelled like a drink
we were laughing, i think
i’ve been away

do you pick up your phone
do you check your mail
do you answer your door even if it’s late?
i don’t know who to call
i don’t know who to write
and i think i forgot
what your face looks like
i’ve been away

do you think that i’ve changed
i swear i never tried
memory is a terrible thing
when you use it right
i was rehearsing a part
from down at the bar
my mouth smelled like a drink
we were laughing, i think
i’ve been away
